After another dreadful deadline day one thing has become clear at Newcastle and that is if you go against the manager you will be out the club.

Although it seems baffling to some fans that Mapou Yanga Mbiwa and Hatem Ben Arfa were loaned out the reasoning is fairly clear – there was no chance of first team football at United. This was due to the breakdown in relationship with the manager.

Pardew has neither confirmed or denied a falling out with either player but it is fairly clear that is the case as both are raring to go for their new ‘temporary’ clubs whereas they didn’t make the bench at Newcastle. Evidence of this can be seen in the quotes by Mbiwa last night – ‘ I am very happy to arrive. I have already spoke with Rudi Garcia. I am ready’. As for Ben Arfa the smile on his face as he arrived at Hull spoke for itself.

The decision of a loan deal for Mbiwa was surprising as Newcastle are very short in numbers at the back with most fans wanting another centre back in after a woeful defensive display against Palace. Instead United chose to get rid of one. The departure of Ben Arfa seemed to be top priority on deadline day for one simple reason, he wasn’t going to play so Newcastle didn’t want to pay his wages, making a loan move ideal.

The emotions of joy at Newcastle to save around 2 million in wages per player were in stark contrast to the anger that was shown by the majority of Newcastle fans after losing a fan favourite and choosing to keep players that they believe should have been sold. Gabriel Obertan and Steven Taylor being the main names on the fans’ lips.

It seems that the priority at Newcastle recently is Alan Pardew. Whether that be because of the money he has spent or Mike Ashley’s close relationship with the manager, it is clear that if you get on his bad side you will be out of the club.
